2017 – Reading Challenges

For 2016, I only joined one reading challenge, the GoodReads reading challenge. I’ve created a page here on my blog so you can follow my progress on it. You can find it here.

For 2017, I plan to join several more challenges, so I’m providing a page for each challenge. That way you can see what the challenge is (including a description), where the challenge came from, and the books I’ve read to work toward completing the challenge. On this page, you can find links to each individual reading challenge’s page.

These challenges are ones that continue on beyond just one year:

Non-Fiction Adventure Challenge This challenge is a “long haul” challenge (10 years and 100+ non-fiction books) and is hosted by Gather Together and Read.

Agatha Christie Reading Challenge – This challenge is also a “long haul” challenge, but perhaps less long haul than the Non-Fiction Adventure Challenge. This is simply a challenge to read everything Agatha Christie wrote. It’s hosted by Mysteries in Paradise.

Sleeping Bear Press Alphabet/Counting Books – This is a challenge that I created just for myself. Find out the details on the individual page for the challenge.
